There was a live mural auction at the Eastfield Mall Saturday evening.
The auction featured 16 large murals, created by local artists. The theme was “art of the 1960s.”
Many of murals were on display at the Mass Mutual Center back in April.
Half of the money raised will go to Greene Room Productions a theater company dedicated to providing hands-on opportunities to children and adults.
Peter Barnett from Greene Room Productions told 22News, this auction helps people experience art in their community.
“By having it here, and having people see it, there would be people who would not be exposed to art in the normal course of their life or to theater,” said Barnett.
In addition to the live auction, some the panels are available for bid or purchase online.
